HC Deb 15 February 1977 vol 926 c151W
7. Mr. Sainsbury

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will give advice to local education authorities on increasing the proportion of recycled paper used in schools, in the interests of economy and the improved use of resources.

Miss Margaret Jackson

Recycling of paper was dealt with in a management services report in 1975 prepared for local authorities. The question is also currently being considered by the Joint Advisory Committee on Local Authority Purchasing. My right hon. Friend is not, therefore, offering additional advice at the moment.
